Today, however, I am angry. Maybe that is because Forrest's case is still so raw. Maybe because Nathan, the new gelding, has more serious problems than one horse should have to deal with. Perhaps its because an owner once again waited until it was likely too late to help before asking. Probably also because the calls to rescues all over Virginia are coming on a more frequent basis with no slowdown in sight.
For today, though, we need to focus on Nathan. We know he is very underweight. He appears to have Cushings. He shows signs of advanced neurological impairment. His feet have been neglected, at least one filled with maggots.
This is what we're here for.
Doesn't mean its always easy.
